The school year is wrapping up for many but for those who are graduating high school - thoughts are already on the upcoming school year this fall and starting college. Starting college can be a big adjustment and we’d like to help with that. Starting May 20th in the U.S., students who buy a qualifying Windows PC worth $699 or more at participating retailers can get a 4GB Xbox 360 console for free, just like last year! Starting May 18th in Canada, students who buy a Windows PC worth $599 or more can also get a 4GB Xbox 360 console for free!
Participating retailers in the US include Dell.com, Fry’s Electronics, HPDirect.com, Microsoft Stores, and NewEgg.com. In Canada, they include Dell.ca, Future Shop, Staples and The Source.
Please note that participating retailers and terms and conditions may change over the course of the promotion. For the most current list of participants, please visit www.windows.com/freexbox.
In college, students will spend quite a bit of time in front of their PC working on reports in Microsoft Word or creating PowerPoint presentations for group projects. They are going to want a stylish, thin and light PC that boasts great performance, yet is also durable for staying connected and on the go – PCs like the HP ENVY 15, Samsung Series 5 ULTRA and the Dell XPS 13. I sometimes feel like a college student myself running to all my meetings and constantly taking notes in Microsoft OneNote. So I recently picked myself up a Dell XPS 13. So far, the XPS 13 has proven to be a quick and nimble PC and is barely noticeable in my messenger bag as I trot through the halls of buildings here at Microsoft.
With all the hard work students put in for their classes in college, they need some downtime, right? That’s where the Xbox 360 comes in! To blow off some steam, you can just hop on Xbox LIVE and play some Halo with friends and family far away or just down the hall. Could be a great way to blow off steam and relax after a long day full of studying and classes. And this fall, Halo 4 hits – which you can now pre-order today! And the Xbox isn’t just for gaming – students will be able to enjoy a variety of entertainment options, including streaming movies and TV shows, sports, music and more!
To take advantage of this offer or more information, check with participating retailers mentioned above. Students or their parents must provide valid student identification as defined by the participating retailer.
Good deal. Hmm... Might get one of those new Lenovos coming out this next month or so.
OMG this is awesome!!! I bought a dell xps for $1460 on March22 from dell.com.... will sure have waited if I had known this deal was going to come back again!!!! :(
This is just not fair, I spent $1300, just a month ago on a new HP laptop for school because my old one died. Can we get in on this?
Great deal. How long will the offer last? Last year it lasted till Sept.
I was in a Florida Best Buy this morning, and when I asked about this promotion the sales staff had heard nothing about it, nor was there any mention of it in their weekly ad. Is the promotion cancelled or postponed?
I had the exact same experience as BHultgren today in a Florida Best Buy. I called the corporate customer service number and they also had never heard of any such promotion. The Canada Best Buy already has the offer up on its website as do a number of other websites (HPdirect.com, the microsoft online store and newegg). Has anyone else in the US had any luck with Best Buy?
I agree just last month I bout a 1,200 dollar laptop from HP direct- any way to get in on this???
I want a build a PC, is there a way to get a free Xbox 360 that way?
